About Me

I have been practicing law for over 30 years.  Along the way I have developed paintings are displayed on my office walls, and I play the bass guitar.  I enjoy hiking, biking and golfing and Acadia National Park and keep these fun things alive and well so they nourish my ability to continue to serve my clients with a refreshed and positive outlook
